Please Reblog: What you can do today to Save Pell
In mere hours, the money that helps nearly 10 million hard-working students afford college could vanish.
President Obama just set a 36-hour deadline to reach a deal on the nation’s debt ceiling with the Republican leadership. That means Congress’ threat to slash Pell Grants could materialize over the weekend.
If we’re going to save Pell, we need you to act NOW. Here’s what you can do:
- Make a call: Dial the White House comment line at 1-888-245-0215 and tell President Obama to take Pell Grant funding off the negotiating table.
- Write a tweet: Tweet to @whitehouse or @barackobama and use the #SavePell hashtag.
- Send an e-mail: Sign this petition and have your message go straight to the President’s inbox.
- Tell your friends: E-mail this post to five friends and ask them to do the same.
Call, sign, tweet, and/or forward. Take one action and you can say you did your part. Take three or four actions and you can say you’re a true advocate for social justice and the long-term economic health of our country.
Let the president know that you think: America can’t afford to sacrifice the future of any more poor or working-class students who are trying to earn their way into the middle class.
PLEASE SIGN THIS. I just got mine taken away, so let’s make sure no one has theirs taken as well!
Everyone should sign! Seriously, how can politicians preach about the importance of higher education, if they’re just going to make it as hard as possible for students to attain it?
yeahhhh ride that dick, erik
I’m pretty sure 99.9% of my dash is illegal right now.
In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!
